The promotion of Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle triggered a vivid memory of Ruffy Biazon.

The Muntinlupa representative got a blast from the past when he learned about Tagle’s promotion to cardinal-bishop, shortly after he was summoned to the Vatican by Pope Francis.

The congressman hinted that he may be well on his way to becoming the highest-ranking official of the Catholic Church, which would be a huge milestone for Pinoy faithfuls.

“In Rome in 2017, our Italian Uber driver predicted that there’ll be a Filipino pope. He said it’s because PH is a significant world player w/ strong Catholic faith, which he said was on the decline even in Rome itself,” the politiko said. “He said, ‘mark my words, remember my name.’ Alas, I forgot.”
